I have had a bit of an absence from posting lately, largely due to the fact that I got visited by one of those pesky viruses and I have had a bit of trouble shaking it! I am sure that is in no small way related to the pressure I am feeling over my slow progress in the studio… I hope I will start to get my energy back this week!
Spring seems to be finally breaking here. The temperatures are above zero degrees and the snow is finally beginning to make a marked retreat. Soon all the dull white will recede into a short-lived brown – that brief moment of silence between the long Winter and the energy of Spring.
I have started a new canvas and I am passionate about the subject. I plan to post progress of the painting if I can take the time to pull myself away from it this week. I fired up the airbrush and I plan to play with it this afternoon. The sky in this one needs a smoothness that I have not been able to get on a canvas this size with even my biggest brush. The paint dries too fast to blend well. So let’s hope this offers the solution.
It is important that I finish this one before the snow is gone…. Stay tuned…. 🙂
